Team news
Gus Poyet may consider changes after watching his side held to another stalemate by Swansea last time out.

Emmanuel Giaccherini is a doubt, with injury problems halting the Italian’s progression this season.

Will Buckley and the Inter loanee Ricky Alavarez will play for wide areas, with Connor Wickham leading the line.

Poyet may be tempted to bring another forward on to partner Wickham who is yet to score in the league this season.

Mame Biram Diouf limped off against Newcastle and is likely to be replaced by Arnautovic, who came on for the Senegal forward on Monday.

Stephan Ireland looks set to start behind an in-form Crouch, with the summer signing of Bojan Krkic to miss out again.

Robert Huth again won’t feature, with Marc Wilson to continue in the heart of the Stoke defence.

Sunderland (4-5-1): Mannone; Jones, Vergini, O’Shea, van Aanholt; Buckley, Larsson, Rodwell, Cattermole, Alvarez; Wickham
Stoke (4-2-3-1): Begovic; Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Muniesa; N’Zonzi, Whelan; Arnautovic, Ireland, Moses; Crouch
